The St. Lauren is a nice, basic hotel. Although our room was really small (think European-style hotel), it was nicely decorated, clean, quiet, and comfortable. It doesn't have many amenities, but by Avalon standards, we felt it was good value for the price. It's up a small hill from the center of town, so it's quiet while still being close...

stayed here for a weekend and it was amazing. the hotel is very clean, and the location is close to everything but still out of the way enough that it's not loud at all at night.

It's a very quaint victorian hotel. Two blocks from all the action. One block is a steep walk up. Rooms are small and even though Expedia checked for me and the hotel said we would get two queens we got a king and a futon or fold out couch. Rooms and hotel are clean. No front desk after 10 PM....

Clean, cozy and friendly staff. Good location, about a block from everything. If u are just looking for a place to sleep and shower, this is a good stop. Very simple rooms, but clean. That's what's important to me.

The "full view" room was simply amazing. A perfect distance from town, lovely staff, wonderful amenities. A perfect hotel for a stay on the island.

This hotel is perfect for a stay in Avalon. The island and this hotel represent the charm of Avalon is such a unique way. There is an excellent view and I liked being away from the noise of downtown. The walk was always refreshing and enjoyable and we felt like a local staying in this personable and quaint property. When...

I booked my stay last minute so I didn't expect much, but I paid 200 dollars for a room with no view, a 13 inch tube tv, and what looked like mold in the bathroom. Staff was okay but not really friendly. No breakfast, just coffee. I don't feel I got my money's worth at all, but if you are...

The deck on the 6th floor, available to all customers, is what makes this hotel a great stay. It is simply the best view of Avalon harbor in the city. We had a "residential" room, which doesn't have a view, but it didn't matter because we were on the 6th floor. We got a king bed + futon, for the...

This hotel is not right on the main street of Avalon, however it is within walking distance to all of the major places you will be visiting. You can easily walk to this hotel from the main boat dock in about 10-15 minutes, taking in some of the fantastic views of the town. The staff was friendly, the room was...
